Ways to help your child at home. 

  • Read regularly with your child, please encourage them to sound out and blend words that they find tricky and ask questions to check their reading comprehension.  This can be supported using Bug Club, however, should not replace you reading with and talking about a book with your child. Bug Club can be found at https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?e=-610&c=0
  • Practise Lexia (if this applies to your child).  https://www.lexiacore5.com/
  • Practise spellings regularly.
  • Practise Times Tables using Times Table Rockstars.
  • Use Doodle to boost Maths knowledge and skills. https://www.doodlelearning.com/
  • Assist with homework tasks. 
  • If any of your child's usernames or passwords have gone missing please contact your child's Class Teacher so they can be reissued.
